This participatory research project conducted in collaboration with
community-based organizations in the Bronx is investigating changes in
sense of place and social capital among youth participating in watershed
restoration activities in the Bronx River watershed. Youth also measure
ecosystem services produced from their activities. The results of the
project will be used by community-based organizations in their efforts
to enhance environmental restoration and stewardship and to reconnect urban
residents with the environment through participation in restoration.
